Good light gameGood light game that plays in around an hour. 4Very good and underrated gameThis game is excellent and you can play it with non gamers because it is not too hardcore. The mechanics are easy to understand.However I will say the rulebook is not very good and may cause confusion. Heads up about the "anchor" cards! The rulebook is not clear about this. You may think that you absolutely need an anchor card to stop at an island/harbor to do any action (conquer an island, pick up cubes, unload cubes) but THIS IS NOT THE CASE. The anchor card simply allows you to do a stopover in the middle of your movement. So don't worry too much if you didn't manage to draft an anchor card, you will still be able to stop at an island / harbor to do all the cool stuff. The anchor card simply allows you stop 2 times and do 2 actions.Other than the so-so rulebook I have nothing negative to say. I play this game with my wife and my 10 year old daughter and we all have a good time. Very good and underrated game! 4great gameThis game makes you think and isn't too long 4Nuanced, complex game for the gamer who has everythingSummary: Liguria is a Euro style game by Queen Games for 3 to 4 players that involves accruing points by capturing assets, completing missions, and strategic placement of pieces. I have played a number of Queen Games over the years, and they have a well-deserved reputation for producing fun and accessible family games.This is not one of them.Not to worry; there is no offensive or adult material. It is simply too complex for most mixed, adult and children groups that I have played with over the past 50+ years.That said, this game probably would ve been a hit with my gaming groups at MIT when I was a dorm daddy. That particular demographic absolutely loved complex games that were full of hidden interactions and allowed clever players to prevail with counterintuitive strategies. Also, if you are a cards against humanity fan then this may be a game for you too.On to the Dr Games Criteria GO/NO GO Criterion Complexity: (NO GO) This is a borderline no go. As evidenced by the summary above, this is a very complex game. Because there are so many ways to score, and your strategy will vary greatly pending on interactions with other players, will need to devote some time to understand this one. Additionally, and frustratingly, to be honest, often, even after you have developed a good strategy, that strategy can be completely undone by the addition of a new player. We tried to play this game three separate times with a very experienced gaming group, and it was difficult to convince group to play the second and third times. Balanced: (GO ) Liguria is completely balanced. Chance (GO) While there is some chance involved, this game highly favors the experienced player. Clarity: (NO GO) While we did eventually figure out the game through a combination of reading the rules, carefully, carefully studying the illustrations, and learning through play (all of the nuances between the various resources), there was much confusion the first two times we played. Reasonable Time: (GO) You should be willing to spend 3 to 4 hours playing this game.Bonus Criteria Social: No. I generally try to be neutral on this criteria, but the ability to lay in wait and crush your opponent makes this a tough game to rate in a positive way and a social scale. Unique/Interesting Mechanics: The three-pronged the scoring approach meant that guile and stealth one over the direct approach every time. I have not seen many games where this is true. Informed: No, no. Rewards Throughout: Yes, theoretically, but your scoring strategy income completely undone in the final turns.I clearly did not like this game. You may be wondering why I gave it three stars. The truth is that there is a demographic for this game. I recently gave two copies to gamer friends who had everything. This game is unlike other games, and it can complete an otherwise full game library. 3Overlooked and underrated: Great game!This is a great overlooked game. Just be careful to understand a common misconception from the rulebook: The number of bag tokens you have means the number of cubes you can *pick up at once*, not the total capacity of your ship. This makes a big difference to the gameplay and is poorly explained in the rulebook. Other than that rules hiccup, it s a good looking medium-weight game with a lot of unique mechanics and interesting choices. It s meant as a prequel of sorts to another great Queen game Fresco but I actually like Liguria better. 5Three StarsThe game plays a bit clunky and slow. It's a fill in game but not a mainstay. 3Looks Bland but Lots of FunThis game looks incredibly bland, but the gameplay is fun with lots of great trade-offs. Players have to weigh choosing tiles first (and getting fewer) or choosing last and taking more. This decision also impacts which ship card players can take, and ship cards matter a great deal. Each ship card has either a green positive number or a red negative number. At the end of the game, if the negatives outweigh a player's positives, that player will lose lots of points.There's a lot to balance as players can upgrade their harbors, conquer islands, place diplomats (to score based on what other players are doing), and fulfill contracts to collect end-game points. Each of these paths has its strengths, and players have to wisely consider which path(s) will lead to victory.The game is ostensibly about collecting paint...but really, that isn't a very exciting theme to begin with, and you won't feel like that's what you're doing in the game, especially because of the sparsely illustrated tiles. But if you like games that are mechanically interesting and offer fun trade-offs, Liguria is probably for you. 4
